Stock dividends? We don't need no stinking stock dividends!

Microsoft, Cisco, and nearly all the dot com's have never paid a
dime in dividends but their stockholders aren't complaining much.
A company should either put it's profits back into the company or
simply use the money to buy back its own stock. I'd rather have a
capital gain than a dividend check any day.Tax reasons.
